This paper describes the latest version of an integrated hardware and software framework developed for autonomous operation of rescue robots. The successful operation of an autonomous rugbot -short for "rugged robot -was especially demonstrated during several runs at the RoboCup world championship 2006 in Bremen. The design of the autonomous system is described in detail with an emphasis on extendibility and the specific requirements of a typical unstructured rescue scenario.
